Just picked up my first active bass. I get the whole "the input switch on the amp reduces the signal 10db" to account for the stronger output of the active electronics. But what if the active bass is not driving the input signal any harder than my passive bass (with Duncan Antiquity II pickups)? If I leave my amp input switch in the passive mode, my amp is not clipping and the output of at the speakers is the same for both basses. Am I hurting anything?
